Important! When the CLEAN FILTER display lights, it is essential to
clean the fluff filter. Otherwise your dryer might suffer damage.
A small amount of fluff may reach the area around the filter in spite of
the fluff filter. Therefore you should clean the entire filter area from
time to time, or at least every three months.
Remove the fluff filter.
Hold the filter lid by the top and pull it forwards until it is released from both holders.
Remove the fluff from the entire filter area
– preferably with a vacuum cleaner.
Press both pins of the filter lid into the holders on the door until they click in.
Reinsert the fluff filter.
Press against the filter lid until it clicks into
the lock.
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the drum
1 Warning! Do not clean the stainless steel drum with abrasive deter-
gents or steel wool!
Fabric softeners or lime in the water can cause a scarcely visible deposit
to form on the drum. The dryer is then no longer reliably able to
recognise how dry the washing is. When the washing is removed from
the dryer it will be damper than you expect.
0 Wipe the inside of the drum and the drum fins with white vinegar to
avoid any residues/deposits effecting the sensors. This is particularly
important if you regulary use fabric conditioning sheets or dry starched
items in the dryer.
Cleaning the panel and operating parts
1 Warning! Do not use household furniture polish or aggressive detergents.
0 Wipe over the panel and operating parts with a damp cloth.
Only use warm water.
Cleaning the door seal
0 Rub the door seal with a damp cloth immediately after the drying procedure.

1
WARNING: A cut off plug inserted into a 13 amp socket is a serious
safety (shock) hazard. Ensure that the cut off plug is disposed of
safely.
Permanent connection
In the case of a permanent connection it is necessary that you install a
double pole switch between the appliance and the electricity supply
(mains), with a minimum gap of 3 mm between the switch contacts
and of a type suitable for the required load in compliance with the
current electrical regulations.

To ensure correct operation:
• The appliance must be level. Use a spirit level if necessary and adjust
the feet to compensate for any unevenness in the floor.
• The surrounding area must be kept clean, free of dust and fluff.
• Do not install the appliance where the temperature may fall below
freezing or rise above 35 °C.
• Do not install the appliance on deep pile carpets or obstruct the front
ventilation grille, as this will affect the air circulation and could lead
to a build-up of heat which would adversely affect the operation of
the machine.

Site Preparation
• The installation surface must be clean and dry.
• Do not install on a deep pile carpet.
• If the appliance is installed next to a heat source (e. g. cooking
appliance), a heat insulation pad (85 x 57 cm) must be placed
between the washing machine and the heat source.

35
Venting
The appliance expels hot, moist air which must be able to flow freely
from the tumble dryer vent.
Tumble Dryer Vents
View from left
Rear view
View from right
The most efficient way of venting the expelled air is via a vent hose
through to the outside.
36
Venting
Venting through a Vent Hose
The vent hose expelling the hot air should have a 100 mm diameter and
be no longer than 4 meters. Avoid bends in the vent hose as this will
reduce the air flow. The maximum length of the vent hose may be:
4 meters with 0 bends, or
2 meters with 2 bends.
If the vent hose is to be permanently installed to the outside, a wall box
or suitable cover should be used on the outside wall.
Example:
A vent hose (Part number: 899647000010/1) and wall box (Part
number: 899647000020/0) are available from your local AEG Service
Force Centre.
Ensure the vent hose is not squashed. The drying efficiency of the
tumble dryer will be affected and may cause the safety cut outs to
operate.
1
Warning! The vent hose must not be connected to a flue pipe or
chimney designed to carry the exhaust from a fuel burning heating
appliance.
37
Venting without a Vent Hose
If a vent hose is not connected to the tumble dryer, the air can be
expelled into the room where the appliance is located providing the
following precautions are observed.
• The vent(s) in use must be at least 30 cm from the wall or any other
object.
• Any vent less than 30 cm from a wall or other object must be closed
using the cover provided.
• The installation room must be well ventilated during the drying cycle.
Special accessories
You can obtain the following special accessories from your retailer.
Stacking kit

automatic washing machine to a washing and drying column. The
appliances are stacked in space-economising manner in this arrangement, the washing machine at the bottom and the laundry dryer at the
top.
The following two kits are available:
– without shelf (TRZ981)
– with shelf (TRZ901)
E-No. 916 018 900
E-No. 916 018 901
Vent hose
To conduct exhaust fumes, a flexible spiral conduit with a diameter of
105 mm can be obtained through your AEG Service Force Centre or at a
specialised electrical shop. This spiral conduit is easy to fit and is easily
attached to the vented tumble dryer using the adapter that comes with
the appliance (see enclosed booklet „Installation Instructions for
Vented Tumble Dryer“).
